Thanks for the response Gary!

This is ok, but I found Cygwin placed my home directory inside another
program's folder. How can I change my home dir?

mm.. lot's of info there! Did you mention this because it has the
definitions of key press symbols?

I am sure that I remember right-click being paste when I was using RedHat
Linux.. anyway..

OK.. I used your .inputrc - thank you very much. Here is what I found:
right-click copies
insert pastes
end prints out ~
home prints out ~
middle mouse button doesn't seem to do anything!

Did I miss something to do with the end, home and middle mouse buttons?
